Afraid

RE Verse reading–Mark 12:28-34 (day three)
“And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.”  Songwriters often fear performing their songs for an audience.  Painters often dread exhibitions.  Actors languish in profound anxiety waiting on the critical reviews after opening night.  Their music or their canvas or their character are extensions of themselves, and it’s not uncommon for them to view critique of their art as a critique of who they are or who they’re becoming.  So it is with belief.  If we really believe something, that belief is part of who we are.  To understand that we have believed something that turns out to be false is a prospect of which we are very much afraid.  So if we never seek truth from the Lord, we don’t have to fear that we’ve been wrong all along, do we?
